Background and activities

I work with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) particularly for studies on the effects of climate change.

I was appointed Professor at the Department of Geography in 2013. I teach and supervise students in Geographic Information Systems and Science (GIS & S) and Effects of Climate Change. My research is broadly in applying GIS addressing issues related to climate change adaptation, vulnerability, environmental hazards, accessibility of health services, disaggregated studies of armed conflicts, urban planning and the use of GIS in education - especially field based education.

Selection of current projects:

Citizen Sensing. Urban Climate Resilience Through Participatory Risk Management System (CitiSense)
